The Speakers Bureau is a part of Toastmasters. The purpose of the Speakers Bureau is to connect Toastmaster Speakers with organizations or groups looking for speakers. The 2013 – 2014 Speakers Bureau Chair is Dana Swarner, CC, CL.


Dana has been busy building on last year’s Speakers Bureau work. She has updated the brochures and fliers. She has been busy organizing the Speakers Bureau to have speakers and venues for them to speak at.


On Saturday, November 3, 2013, Dana had a Speakers Bureau Orientation Meeting at the Milton Kimpson Continuing Education Center at Benedict College. Dana explained the Speakers Bureau Program to those in attendance (51 had pre-registered). She provided everyone with the forms the Speakers would need to be part of the Speakers Bureau. Amy McIntosh, CC, CL, discussed considerations for creating the materials needed on the road to being a paid professional speaker. Phil Woody, DTM, IPDG, discussed his experiences as a paid speaker. The day concluded with Brain Carver, CC, video recording several people’s Bios and sample speeches.
